It seems to me, on one of your site you are using both ASP.NET 1 and ASP.NET 2. Check the event logs on which directory your ASP.NET 1 website is showing ASP.NET 2 error. Create that directory as a virtual directory on server and move this directory to another application pool and after that problem should go away for you.

In addition to above solution I would suggest you to check if the Asp.Net 1.1 is set for your website which is showing error. You can set Asp.Net 1.1 from Right Click on VirtualDirectory created for website. Properties --> Under ASP.NET tab.
